Altitude Sickness

Altitude sickness height min

It is the major problem and the difficult situation in the mountainous region. The atmospheric pressure and the oxygen is lower than the sea level in the higher altitude location.With the thinner level of oxygen and the high altitude, it will take time to adjust to the surrounding environment at such high altitude. During the altitude sickness, you may get symptoms like nausea, diarrhea, headache, loss of appetite, insomnia and other. High altitude can be moderate for some trekkers but it can be serious for others.  you find some symptoms of altitude sickness while making the adventure hike, you should immediately return back to a lower altitude region. Do not ignore these types of symptoms which may result in serious problems or the death of the traveler while trekking to the high altitude.

It is not recommended to drink alcohol at such a high altitude. Though there is some medicine available to prevent altitude sickness, you are suggested to take rest and take precautions rather than medicine.

 

Weather and Temperature

Weather and Temperature is a major factor that can create a major difficulty in Annapurna base camp trekking. Change in the temperature drastically is based on the weather , altitude , climate and seasons. The average temperature at the Annapurna Base Camp region is about 15 to 20-degree centigrade on a sunny day during the autumn and spring whereas, in the summer, the temperature ranges from 20-25 degrees centigrade.The temperature is normal and moderate during the day time or under the sun time.  In winter, it is the most dangerous and the challenging season in the Annapurna Base Camp Trek. In this season, there is the possibility of heavy snowfall and the temperature can be below 0 and can be decreased to minus 17 degrees centigrade at the night time. Autumn is the picking season to trek Annapurna Base Camp because of the good and calm weather condition in the mountain at this time of the year. After Autumn season, the spring season is also best season to trek in Annapurna region because the days are very beautiful and charming, we can experience the green and beautiful Himalayan flora and fauna, walk through the green terraced field, with the gorgeous and the heart touching views of the snow painted mountain peaks.The best part of the trekking in Annapurna Base Camp is you can trek here in monsoon too as there will be less chance of rainfall in this region. This whole region is rain shaded, so the monsoon does not affect too much while trekking in the Annapurna region.So,before trekking you should take all the essential and seasonal clothes for the drastic change in weather and temperature.

 

Lack of Training

The most reliable, legendary and classical trek is the Annapurna base camp as the route of this trek is not so difficult. However for the new mountain hikers it will be a challenging trek. Therefore, best preparation is needed for the adventure hiking if you are trekking the mountain region for the first time. First of all the trekkers should take 6 weeks of training before making a trip to the Annapurna region to make the body healthy as well as physically and mentally fit and fine.At the higher altitude walk or the walk-in uphill, even a short period of the walk will make you feel tired. Descending towards the lower region is comparatively easier than ascending uphill to the higher altitude as in the high altitude there is very less amount of the oxygen up in the mountains.If you are perfectly trained, you can trek any kind of trekking trial easily. To maintain your fitness, you have to perform difficult works, even simple exercises such as stretching, jogging, swimming, skipping can be helpful for you.

 

Budget

The country of Nepal is one of the most inexpensive trekking destinations in the world. However, the price of the goods and things you use will get more expensive as you reach at a higher altitude than at the lower altitude. The cost of the food and accommodation get tripled or more than it is in normal rate this due to the lack of good transportation and communication facilities in the mountain region.

 

Guide and porter difficult

Most trekkers do trekking with a guide but not a porter and there are some trekkers who trek to Annapurna base camp on their own without any guide or porter. Annapurna base camp is absolutely doable without a guide or a porter. However hiring a guid means you are always on a safer side.The trek doesn’t involve any technical sections but there are some steep and rugged sections. Also, walking up and down the stone stairs is not so easy. So, hiring a porter is also useful.But if you think that you have good physical conditions, you can carry your backpack on your own.

Flag Of Nepal

Introduction 

In the past, hundreds of kingdoms existed with unique flags and designs. Sadly, as time changed, many countries have risen and fallen. However, among them, Nepal is a nation that has been never conquered or colonized. Also, the flag of Nepal is a unique flag in the world. Nepali Flag, the national flag in Nepal is the only flag in the world that is nonquadrilateral in shape.

 

Color/Shape/Design

The design of the Nepali flag dates back centuries. The color used the flag-crimson and blue. 

In the upper part of the flag lies a white moon with eight rays along with a crescent below it. Also, the lower part has a stylized white sun with 12 rays. Previously, there were facial features representing both sun and moon though currently removed.

The color crimson on the flag represents the bravery of the Nepalese. The color crimson, white and blue has a huge meaning. The color crimson represents closeness, blue represents distance and white represents neutrality.

Also, the crimson color is also lucky in Hinduism.

 

Meaning of Nepalese Flag

The meaning of the sun and moon is as long as the sun and moon exist, Nepal will continue to exist.

Also, according to Hinduism, Sun is one of the five gods in the Hindu religion and is often used in rituals. The 12 signs of the month of Nepal and Hinduism are based on the sun. It is also the symbol of the soul.

Likewise, the moon symbolizes the heart and is also the head of the asteroids.

 

History of Nepali Flag

The Nepali flag was not the original flag of Nepal. It is also believed that the design of the flag took inspiration from the Malla dynasty in the past.  

Instead, many also believe that this flag was based on two different pennants of the ruling  Rana Family and their rival branch. Both the pennant was made during the last centuries.  However, the flag was only accepted as a constitutional flag on 1962.

The upper portion of the moon represented the Royal Family and The lower parts symbolized the Rana Family. 

 

Why Nepali Flag is unique?

The Nepali flag is in nonquadrilateral shape. But there are also many countries in the world that do not follow the rectangular shape. According to many, these flags are found in many countries in mountainous regions, land-locked or not well-known nations. For example- Switzerland still has a square flag. Other examples can also include the Ethiopian national flag.

People also believe that many places in India also use such non-rectangular flags. Though, they may have been lost in Indian Independence.

Therefore, Nepali Flag is a living Fossil that showcases the lost design of the flags on the Indian Subcontinent.

 

Entry of the Nepali Flag into the world

The first entry of the Nepali Flag was found by M. Lupant in a book published by Perceval Laundon in 1928 (Nepal, vol. 1, pp. 233-236, Constable, London).

 

Proposals for Flag change

Since the end of the monarchy, there have been many proposals for flag changes.

There was a debate that believed that since the fun and moon in the flag do not advocate monarchy, the flag should be changed.

In the past, there were proposals from the parties UCPN Maoist, Rashtriya Janamorcha and Dalit Janjati Party filed the petition to change the national flag. However, the Nepali Congress, CPN-UML and Nepali Majdoor Kisan Party thwarted it.

Altitude Sickness 

 

 

Altitude Sickness Chart

 

It is the major problem and a difficult situation in the mountainous region. The atmospheric pressure and the oxygen are lower than the sea level in the higher altitude location. With the thinner level of oxygen and the high altitude, it will take time to adjust to the surrounding environment at such a high altitude.

 

During altitude sickness, you may get symptoms like nausea, diarrhea, headache, loss of appetite, insomnia, and others. High altitude can be moderate for some trekkers but it can be serious for others.

 

If you find some symptoms of altitude sickness while making the adventure hike, you should immediately return back to a lower altitude region. Do not ignore these types of symptoms which may result in serious problems or the death of the traveler while trekking to a high altitude.

 

It is not recommended to drink alcohol at such a high altitude. Though there is some medicine available to prevent altitude sickness, you are suggested to take rest and take precautions rather than medicine.

 

Weather and Temperature

Weather and Temperature is a major factors that can create a major difficulty in Annapurna base camp trekking. Changes in the temperature drastically are based on the weather, altitude, climate, and seasons. The average temperature at the Annapurna Base Camp region is about 15 to 20 degrees centigrade on a sunny day during the autumn and spring whereas, in the summer, the temperature ranges from 20-25 degrees centigrade.

 

The temperature is normal and moderate during the daytime or under the sun time.  In winter, it is the most dangerous and challenging season in the Annapurna Base Camp Trek. In this season, there is the possibility of heavy snowfall and the temperature can be below 0 and can be decreased to minus 17 degrees centigrade at night time. Autumn is the picking season to trek Annapurna Base Camp because of the good and calm weather conditions in the mountain at this time of the year.

 

After the Autumn season, the spring season is also the best season to trek in the Annapurna region because the days are very beautiful and charming, we can experience the green and beautiful Himalayan flora and fauna, walk through the green terraced field, with the gorgeous and the heart-touching views of the snow painted mountain peaks.

 

The best part of trekking in Annapurna Base Camp is you can trek here during the monsoon too as there will be less chance of rainfall in this region. This whole region is rain shaded, so the monsoon does not affect too much while trekking in the Annapurna region. So, before trekking, you should take all the essential and seasonal clothes for the drastic change in weather and temperature.

 

Lack of Training 

 

The most reliable, legendary, and classical trek is the Annapurna base camp as the route of this trek is not so difficult. However, for the new mountain hikers, it will be a challenging trek. Therefore, the best preparation is needed for the adventure hiking if you are trekking the mountain region for the first time. First of all the trekkers should take 6 weeks of training before making a trip to the Annapurna region to make the body healthy as well as physically and mentally fit and fine.

 

At the higher altitude walk or the walk-in uphill, even a short period of the walk will make you feel tired. Descending towards the lower region is comparatively easier than ascending uphill to the higher altitude as in the high altitude there is very less amount of oxygen up in the mountains. If you are perfectly trained, you can trek any kind of trekking trial easily. To maintain your fitness, you have to perform difficult work, even simple exercises such as stretching, jogging, swimming, and skipping can be helpful for you.

 

 

Budget

The country of Nepal is one of the most inexpensive trekking destinations in the world. However, the price of the goods and things you use will get more expensive as you reach a higher altitude than at a lower altitude. The cost of food and accommodation gets tripled or more than it is at a normal rate due to the lack of good transportation and communication facilities in the mountain region.

 

 

Guide and porter difficult 

 

Most trekkers do the trek with a guide but not a porter and there are some trekkers who trek to Annapurna base camp on their own without any guide or porter. Annapurna base camp is absolutely doable without a guide or a porter. However, hiring a guide means you are always on the safer side.

 

The trek doesn’t involve any technical sections but there are some steep and rugged sections. Also, walking up and down the stone stairs is not so easy. So, hiring a porter is also useful. But if you think that you have good physical conditions, you can carry your backpack on your own.

 

 

Clothing 

 

The temperature in the mountainous region changes day to day due to the higher altitude locations from sea level. The mornings are colder for most of the seasons while the daytime is a bit warmer. So, you need to wear clothes according to the weather conditions. 

 

Here are some of the list of clothes that should be carried while trekking to Annapurna base camp:

Geography of Nepal

Nepal is a non-contiguous country between the two large countries, India and China. People seeking adventure and daring activities get the full pleasure of the trip to Nepal and the visitor guide too. The challenging routes and trek of Nepal are one of the best adventure destinations in the world.

 

The geographical field of Nepal is separated into three regions. The upper and off-road mountains, the mid-hills (inner terai), and the flat plain are also called terai.

 

Every region of Nepal has a different climate structure. The upper hills and mountains are cold throughout the year and the plain region of terai is extremely hot in summer and extremely cold in winter. The infrastructure of Nepal is distributed in the same ways as the distributed region of Nepal in a different format. 

 

The plain terrain is well facilitated, with roads and vehicles from east to west, but with some extent of excuse on the way. The mid-hill route is pleasant but not the best throughout the season, and the mountain region is almost off-road throughout the season.

 

We are enlisting the best destination in Nepal here.

 

Visa and visit permits

Nepal is the easiest to get a visa. You can apply for a visa online up to 15 days before your arrival date in Nepal. All you’ll need is the address of the hotel room where you’ll be staying in Nepal, as well as a current digital picture of your passport-size photo to upload to your application. It all depends on how you want your visa to be registered, either visa on arrival or the visit visa.

 

Along with a visa, and a specific region to travel to, there is a requirement of visit permits if the region is conservative or preserved. Before traveling to Nepal, here is something to keep in mind. So research the place you are planning to visit before landing at the site.

 

Language to Communicate

Nepalese are as beautiful as Nepal itself is. People are living their lives simply. The tradition and the culture have the same old values, norms, and respect. The mother tongue of Nepalese people is Nepali but here, over 122 languages are spoken. People from different castes have their own language. 

 

English is the least spoken language, but if you are there to travel with the travel agency, you will be able to communicate through a guide who also works as a translator. The local spoken major language is Nepali and somewhere in the Magar community, people use their local language, i.e. Magar. Gurung, Tamang, Tharu, and Newari are the most preferred languages.  

 

Currency and payment method

The official currency of Nepal is Nepalese rupees/rupee or NRP/Rs. In Nepal, cash is used for the majority of transactions. And, while credit cards are accepted in large department stores, don’t expect to be able to use your credit or debit card everywhere. These means of transaction‌ are widely accepted by major hotels, restaurants, and airlines.  

 

The large capital city of Nepal, Kathmandu, has many currency exchangers that would ease you after landing at the international airport because the only international airport is TIA at Kathmandu and the travel agency is pretty much easier to consult. The exchange rate of money may vary according to the company, so get the raw and factual details before getting to them. 

 

Traveling routes and vehicles

After arrival at the international airport in Kathmandu, there are easily available taxis and vehicles that will take you to the destination. Or if you are here with some travel agency, there will be the agency vehicle that will take you to the hotel for your stay.

 

The road and route of Nepal are pretty much easier in the terai region. Local buses and tourist vehicles are available on the different routes, making it easy to travel at a low cost.

 

Always be concerned with the fraud and fake people who seem to loot new people from different localities. The route and trek are fair to every tour destination. Locals are active people to guide the local areas and advertise the local resources.

 

Safety and precaution

The first thing to be concerned about during the trek, and travel is safety. Nepal is a safe country to travel. Rather, solo travel is restricted to some extent because of the location and‌ route. It is always the best idea to go with a group of people to travel to any of the destinations to explore.

 

Despite Nepal being hills and mountainous country, there may arise problems in accommodation and networking, so be prepared for a concerned backpack before starting the journey.

 

Nepal army and police have given a good quality of services. Every local villager and people show a helping hand to every guest. There is a quotation “Atithi Devo Bhava” which means guests are gods, so they are welcomed and provided with the quality services they can afford.

 

 

Local and street foods to taste

There are a lot of things to know before visiting Nepal than the things mentioned above. People after arriving in Nepal carve to the fullest to test the best momos of Kathmandu valley and other local areas too. The best fast street food is Momo and pani puri also locally called “fulki”. The regular meal of Nepali people is “daat, vaat and tarkali”.

 

Nepali people always have dinner at their home with their family. Unlike the foreign, the dinner culture is never outside the home’s kitchen. The family gathers and meeting at the best is the best pat to the whole of the culture and tradition.

 

And talking about the street and fast food, many stalls stand aside on the road that attracts the people to taste the local street food of Nepal. 

 

Alike having their own language of their caste, people also cook the food item according to their culture and caste in original form.

 

Concerned About 

Drinking tap water

The sources of drinking water in Nepal are Himalayas and mountains. The drinking water facilities are easily available in every street in Nepal but are considered unsafe for health.

If you are traveling to the hills and mountains of Nepal, be sure that you have prepared for the cold weather to adjust. But the fall and spring season is the best of all to view the panoramic beauty of clear mountains to the closest.

 

Due to the under-developing construction of different routes to the hilly region, it may be difficult to hike on the hill during the rainy season. Local buses and‌ vehicles are not available that frequent.
